STATEMENT
BIO

The noise, the traces and marks are the results of an activity that did not necessarily expect to produce them. 

American born in Madrid in 1993. Lives and works in L’Hospitalet, Barcelona, Spain. 

 

His artistic practice explores suburban culture from memory. Working with photography, sound, text or sculpture, he collects experiences from his environment, interested in researching the traces and marks left by the individual. Recently, he’s been an artist in residence at HANGAR Lisboa (2016) and at NauEstruch, Sabadell (2015). He’s received awards like the Full Contact Prize at SCAN International Photography Festival at Tarragona (2013), Honor Mention at Ciutat de Palma (2013) and finalist at the Miquel Casablancas Award from Sant Andreu Contemporani (2014, 2016). He has also received grants like INJUVE (2015) and has been selected at Descubrimientos PHotoEspaña (2017), Café Dossier at Tabacalera Madrid (2014) and the Encontro de Artistas Novos at Cidade da Cultura in Santiago de Compostela, Spain (2014). He’s been invited to talk about his work at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam (2017), the EAM Leandre Cristófol, Lleida (2015) and at the Diego Portales University in Santiago de Chile (2015).

 

He’s had solo exhibitions at L21 Gallery in Palma and Madrid, at the Chirivella Soriano Foundation in Valencia, LOCAL Arte Contemporáneo in Santiago de Chile, DAFO Projectes in Lleida, Spain, and has recently participated at two-person exhibitions at Ana Mas Projects in Barcelona and at Bacelos Gallery in Madrid. His work has been included in curated projects at Salón, Sant Andreu Contemporani and La Casa Encendida.

 

In 2018 he will present a solo exhibition at the Finnish Museum of Photography in Helsinki.

 

He is also co-founder of the art publisher editions&publications.
